Politics is central to addressing the shared concerns of citizens and political science highlights the underlying forces that drive and constrain power and government.

The department is a dynamic scholarly environment where professors believe that research and teaching flourish together. It is a place where you feel comfortable debating current issues in the classroom and beyond it, broadening your understanding of the political world.
